Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day In Chicago

Did you know that July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day?

If you would like to celebrate by feasting on this delicious dish, stop by one of the following restaurants:

Big JonesĀ 

Chef/owner Paul Fehribach grew up in a small Indiana town where he spent time wandering the woods hunting and fishing. It was these experiences that shaped his approach to the Southern cooking style that focuses on sustainability grown heritage and heirloom crops and livestock. Big Jones opened in 2009 and was soon named “Best New Restaurant” by Chicago Magazine, and today, OpenTable calls it one of the “Best Brunch Restaurants in America.” The menu features an array of meals including fried chicken served with sweet potato hash and voodoo greens.

Harold’s Chicken Shack

Chicago entrepreneur Harold Pierce founded this restaurant in 1950. Now a cornerstone of the community, it was once one of the few examples of a thriving food chain in the area. Guests enjoy the casual atmosphere, friendly service, reasonable prices, and the Chicago-style fried chicken with fries on the side.

Smalls Smoke Shack & More

Smalls is known for its combination of regional American barbecue techniques and Asian comfort foods that provide a unique culinary experience. Chef Joaquin Soler has spent much of his life in the kitchen and he also owns the Brown Bag Lunch Truck. In a laid-back environment that’s perfect for meeting friends for dinner, guests can enjoy the buttermilk brined fried chicken that comes with house cut fries, banana ketchup, and Texas toast.
